Willamette Wake Up 11/09/2020 — Permanent Supportive Housing - Best Practice for Successfully Housing Chronically Homeless

Show Notes

In this episode of Invisible People, we hear how permanent supportive housing is the best way to help people out of chronic homelessness.  Jimmy Jones - MidValley Community Action, Nicole Utz - Salem Housing Authority, and Robin Winkle - Shangri-La discuss existing and future housing options with wrap-around services that support people to keep them housed.  The group also talks about how the pandemic and wildfires have worsened the problem and why we still are spending many resources on managing rather than solving homelessness. They also say why they are still hopeful and ask for continued community support.
